Vikalp, movie review
Vikalp is an action thriller which talks cyber crime, hacking and terrorism. The title – Vikalp, which means “an option” in English, is a film which could have been an edge-of-the-seat thriller, but it isn’t due to average editing and an amateurish attempt in direction. Vikalp movie review... The film is about a docile, middle class girl from an orphanage, exceptionally talented Rishika Gandhi (Deepal Shaw) who is a sort of genius in the field of computer education. She works as a code developer in an established private IT (Information Technology) company in Mumbai. There is a serious goof up and she has to resign from her job. This Marathi medium background girl experiences turbulent times in her personal life too when her boyfriend's parents accuse her of using their son for seeking financial security. The self respecting girl is humiliated and heart-broken. Rishika c ....

Kis Hudh Tak, movie review
Kis Hudh Tak was earlier titled as "Dia". In one of the publicity banners of this film, a tagline states "Rape is a Crime if you can prove it otherwise it ends up being consent." Kis Hudh Tak movie review... A film about Justice and how far a person will go to get it, it is about love, caring and commitment. It is about anger at the state of our society. Kis Hudh Tak is about the state of our judicial system. And most of all it is about the fact that if you want something bad enough - it is not money or power that helps you to get it - what you really need is intelligence, determination, patience and focus. But above all - you need the strength of conviction to sacrifice, if necessary, that very thing that you hold dearest to your heart. For in the extent of your sacrifice lies the extent of your conviction. Rape in itself is a terrible act but Date rape is gruesome because i ....

Firaaq, movie review
Most films about riots are full of violence that they set out to critique. Actress Nandita Das has her debut in direction with Firaaq, which explores the fierce and delicate emotions of fear, anxiety, prejudice and ambivalence in human relationships during the riots. Firaaq is an Urdu word that means both separation and quest. The film is a work of fiction, based on a thousand stories.The story is set over a 24-hour period, one month after a carnage that took place in Gujarat, India, in 2002. It traces the emotional journeys of ordinary people - some who were victims, some perpetrators and some who chose to watch silently. As an ensemble film, it follows multiple narratives that are at times interconnected and at times discreet, yet all are united by their spatial and emotional context. A middle-class housewife Aarti (Deepti Naval) closes the door on a woman desperately seeking ref ....
